Encryption Mandate: Clear and Present Danger for the Energy Sector
Energy organizations fuel the 21st century by producing and delivering electricity, oil, and natural gas. More importantly, they enable the operation of every other critical infrastructure required for a functioning society and economy. Unfortunately, these organizations are increasingly subject to sophisticated cyber security attacks. Imagine what would happen if people no longer had access to safe, reliable electric power, water, telecommunications, gas supply, transportation, or other critical infrastructure systems.
Encryption in Government
Make the Rules, Play by the Rules
Few entities possess as much personal information as the U.S. government. In 2015, the Internal Revenue Service processed over 150 million tax returns, and the Social Security Administration paid benefits to nearly 60 million Americans.

Encryption in Healthcare
The Right Prescription for Maintaining Compliance with Patient Security Regulations
In the healthcare industry, expensive equipment is usually a point of pride, but one leading provider never intended to pay $1.5 million each for two laptops. Only after the laptops were stolen did it come to light that they contained over 1 million unencrypted patient records — a clear HIPAA violation. The provider ended up settling a class action suit for $3 million, but plenty of other healthcare providers have felt the sting of failing to comply with HIPAA, as well. The next major data breach isn’t a matter of if, only when.
